Elderly Woman Killed By Forklift

February 13, 2013 State of Wyoming, Sublette County No Comments
Forklift

A bizzare accident yesterday has the town of Pinedale reeling.  A 91-year-old woman died at the local grocery store after being struck by a fork lift that was unloading a delivery truck in the store’s loading area.  According to the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office, Martha Nannen of Pinedale was knocked down by the forks of the machine and then struck by the machine itself shortly after 3:00 pm.    She was transported to the Pinedale medical clinic where she was later pronounced dead.  A short time later, KPIN Radio reports the driver of the forklift suffered a heart attack and was airlifted to Eastern Idaho Medical Center in Idaho Falls.  His current condition is not known at this time.

If you’re a die-hard hunter, you’re probably already hunkered down in a field waiting for the geese to come in, out in the timber trying […]
  • Not all bad news in judge’s decision to relist wolves - September 30, 2014
    U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson handed down a ruling last week that removed wolves from Wyoming control and put them back under the protection of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
